|Flyin' Miata projects in the shop
|Product development time!|
Brandon's been spending a lot of time working on some new cooling products using Igor, one of our test cars.
|Do we have V-Maxx suspension in stock?|
We sure do. 14 pallets worth of V-Maxx suspension just arrived. It's time for the forklift races.
We have wheels! So many wheels.
|A big batch of Jongbloed wheels just arrived, along with a huge price reduction!|
|Happy birthday to us!|
Flyin' Miata was incorporated as The Dealer Alternative 31 years ago today.
We started as a VW/Audi/Porsche service shop and started working on Miatas as soon as they were introduced. The German car side of the company got the boot in 1996 when we went into Miatas full time. And look at what's happened since!
|Remember the Plum Crazy valve cover?|
Well, it's on a freshly built engine and is about to be installed in the car.
You can see our hard water and oil lines well in this picture - they're usually hard to see.
|This (minus five drop shipped boxes)is what it takes to build a V8 Miata.|
Even the crate engine is included at the far end. Trish is hiding while she contemplates the packing job.
|It's almost time for the first start of the fresh engine!|
|A freshly built FM engine with a GT3071R turbo, ATi damper and FM Big Spark kit.|
This will be a healthy little car. We put a brass plate with the customer's name on every engine we build.
|Kevin tows his golf clubs as fast as he wants to with his FM supercharger.|
This 1999 is here for a freshly built engine and a turbo install.
|Another NC is being set up with the prototype FOX shocks for testing.|
|It's not all crazed supercharged V8s in light chassis around here.|
Eric's putting the finishing touches on a high compression four cylinder to ship to a customer.
|A special request for a valve cover powdercoat: Classic Mopar Plum Crazy.|
It looks awesome in person.
|Keith's so excited about his "new" car he even waxed it.|
No, it's not going to get an engine swap.
|Charly Q claims at least 10 hp just from the windshield banner!|
|The black V8 that recently sold is getting some attention before it meets its new owner.|
A rear brake upgrade, new front hubs, new wheels and a few other tweaks to bring the car up to spec. It's keeping the original intake design for now.
|Kyle dives into another Targa Package install: roll bar, suspension, supercharger and exhaust.|
In this case, we'll also install a new driver's seat and fit some very fat tires.
The freshly supercharged 2008 hits the streets on a new FM suspension.
|Science experiment time!|
This electric water pump not only moves a lot of coolant, it also will also adjust to the amount of circulation actually required. Let's see how it deals with our extreme cooling needs at the Summer Camp.
